Loving all the wonderful literary works in this book. It has a reader's paradise of numerous poems, short stories, fiction and nonfiction. Although, I purchased this book for a class, it has been worth my wild to read it. The questions at the end of the works help enlighten and ansure you get the most from the passages. It is a book definitely worth buying and reading.

I ordered this book for an English 105 class and we've read about 5% of the book. I decided to keep the book at the end of the course and read it for fun. The book is very well organized, the sections are divided into themes such as Love and Hate, Life and Death, Culture and Identity etc. They had a wide selection of authors and genres including poetry and playwrights. I liked it more than most of my standard English textbooks.

This book holds a lot of knowledge for the literature enthusiast. I bought it for a class online but ended up keeping it instead of reselling. I enjoyed the book and the information so much I couldn't let it go. I would definitely recommend this for a class or even for your own personal use.

I bought this book for my LIT210 course, and I am happy to say that I like this book. Not a book that I will be reselling or tossing after the class is over. Wide variety of stories and poems that there is bound to be something in the book for everyone.

The book was what I needed, it helped me with the online course I took. I found myself reading more than what was required.
